Overview of exemptions

Overview : Exemptions provide instructors with a way to explain why a learner lacks a score for a grade item. A blank or zero grade may signify non-submission, ungraded status, or failure. Exemptions support legitimate differentiation for various components like External Learning Tool links, Assignments, Quizzes, and Discussion topics. However, exemptions cannot be applied to final calculated grades or final adjusted grades.
